3 Teeth and Da-Da

I forgot to mention in my last post that my piggy has 3 teeth coming in! She now bites the spoon and latches on to it when I feed her. I have to pull on the spoon while she's laughing and won't let me pull it out!

Top tooth!

2 bottom teeth!

My first video posting!
Here's my little piggy "whispering" da-da. She says it all the time, but strolls around whispering it all the time too. She's also started a "head nodding" thing. She puts her head down and nods. Any insight? :)

Birthday Fun and Independence

On the 30th, (Friday,) my baby girl is turning 8 months! She's standing on her own, trying to give herself a bottle, saying "dadadada," and so much more!

Looking back on the weekend, Friday, we celebrated Camdyn's church dedication. I got some pics of the girls with their bows on too! Miss Cam Cam looked so pretty in her brown velvet! We hung out at Taren's afterwards and had some great snack foods. The girls were up until 9:30!

On Saturday, we had our first b-day party! We went to Emma's grandparents for her
1st b-day! The girls hung out together and we watched Emma open her gifts! We gave her a cute rainbow onesie from Target "boutique" and a super cute backpack that has her name on it! It was so much fun! Emma's tutu looked just like cotton candy!

The last pics are Macey hanging around the house with her walker. She takes slow steps, but she's getting the hang of it. She was also looking at the pic on the fireplace of her and her "dadadadada."

Lastly, I'm so happy to see baby Harper's eyes open. I can't imagine the pain that Kelly and her family have gone through. I praise God that he's given me a healthy baby and I pray that Kelly, her husband, and Harper get to go home soon.

Have a great remainder of the week. Be careful outside, it's slick!

New Toy!

Because Macey loves to pull up and stand on everything now, we went out and bought
her this walker/stroller to help her learn to walk. She's a little timid with it still, but she's starting to pull her feet forward when her arms are extended out, about to fall! Poor thing struggles, goes up on her toes, and moves a leg.

It's been a little boring around the Butler household, but boring is good! We haven't been doing much lately, just eating out on the weekends and enjoying our time at home. We have a fire quite often now, so Macey loves to pull on Derrick while he's tending to it.

That's about it. I'm home for the holiday on Monday and then we have Cam's dedication on Friday and Emma's 1st b-day on Saturday! Next month, the babies get to play together again for a Valentine exchange on the 14th.

Have a good weekend!

Happy 2009!

Over the past 2 weeks, I've had so much fun with my family! I've enjoyed every second with Macey and I hate to see it end.
We go back tomorrow and Miss Macey is off to see Ms. Ashley and Emma! We've missed those two blondes!

On New Years Eve, we stayed in Rockwall and tried to go to Salt Grass. At 5:30 p.m., there was an hour wait! SO, we headed to our favorite, Edohana, for a delicious hibachi meal! Later that night, D and I discreetly shared a pitcher of beer and limeade:)Woo Hoo!

New Years Day, we spent time with Derrick's mother and his side of the family. Macey wore her precious piggy outfit Aunt Jan made. We ate and opened some last minute presents!

Nana C gave us a funnel cake maker, so D made us some great funnel cakes! We all stuffed our faces!

D decided to take down our lights and we enjoyed a walk in the 80 degree Texas weather! Now it's raining and icesicles have formed everywhere! Only in TEXAS! As the weekend came to a close, Derrick and I went and saw, Marley and Me. I think I cried for 10 minutes straight. Such a great movie.

~Have a great week!

New Years Day with Nana!

My to-go box :)
Derrick draws this same "Man" on everything! He primarily calls me by my middle name, but sometimes Candy or Candy Cane.
